(security release)
3 March 2014 - 14MBSecurity issues:
  • A file upload vulnerability and various XSS issues on the admin pages. Mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have an PivotX account. All issues require that the attacker has a PivotX account/user, so for sites with multiple users, you will want these patched.

Other bug fixes:
  • For flatfile databases: Adding excerpts to the output from getLatestPages so page excerpts are displayed on the dashboard.
  • For flatfile databases: 'read_entries' should not change the current entry (since read_entries is used for other things than creating subweblogs).
  • Bug fix in session cookie domain - any subdomain named "wwwX" (where X is any character) resulted in an invalid domain for the cookie.
  • Set UTF-8 for debug window (and also give it a title).
